Fave, “My, those are your hands? Those are your hands! What happened to you? Where are your parents? Um… Your mother? Your father? Are you alone? Do you live up here all by yourself?” Frame:

“Each year vaccinated wildlife rescuers hand rear baby flying foxes. At the end of the hand rearing process, (usually at about 13 weeks of age) the weaned babies are sent to baby bat crèche where they learn appropriate battie socialization skills. Tobermory had wing tip injuries sustained on rescue and shared the hospital aviary with several others, including 2 little guys who still required a morning bottle feed. As I searched in the bedding materials for the recipients, (weaned) Tobermory snuck over and made off with one of the bottles. I was impressed with his stealth and ingenuity and the fact he knew the bottle needed to be upended for the milk to flow. He afterwards got a bowl of warm milk for his trouble. Tobermorey is a grey headed flying fox and after his injuries were resolved, he was released back into the wild with his 60 crèche companions.”

Voilà, Ellie in all her purrrrrrrrrrrrr-fection. Turn it up a bit for the full effect.

From Cuteporter Lauren U.: “Here’s my 14 year old kitty, Ellie, de-stressing after a rough week in Watertown, MA. (We’re a little less than 1 mile from where they caught him.) She spent the morning fluffing her toe fuzz and promptly fell asleep purring.”

“Helloooooo! These are pictures of my kitty, Kippo. He is a Devon Rex and he is 11 years old, which according to the chart at the vet, that means he is 60! He’s an old man and he loves to hide under any covers that he can find. He is currently hiding in my purple bed. He is SO cute! Don’tcha think?!” -Annie H.

“Ash is all grow’d up now (a year and a half…oh where has the time gone?!) and I randomly snapped a super-squee picture of his hoarding talents. P.S. Yesterday was my birthday so you kind of owe me. Thanks bunches.”

But You Didn’t Hear it From Me

Now, mind you, I would never say a word against Marvin here. Salt of the earth, nice to his kids, active in Rotary… good fella. But, confidentially, just between you and me… He added a few feathers up top recently, if you catch my drift.
